Andie Flashback Friday, Release Birthday, Video Comments Off on Release Birthday: Du Nimmst Mir Die Angst (2 Years Ago)

Jennifer Rostock released the music video for ‘Du Nimmst Mir Die Angst,’ the fourth song from their album Schlaflos to have a music video, two years ago. The footage used was recorded during their Schlaflos Tour and put together by Christoph Mangler, who also directed the videos for ‘Es War Nicht Alles Schlecht,’ ‘Der Kapitän,’ ‘Hier Werd Ich Nicht Alt,’ ‘Schlag Alarm‘ (working together with Bear Films), and ‘Schlaflos (Schuld Edit).’

And since it’s Friday, might as well use this chance to also have this as a #FlashbackFriday!

Andie Festival Summer 2016, Genau in diesem Ton, Interview Comments Off on Jennifer Weist Visits joiz

Our lovely Jennifer Weist stopped by joiz today, and thanks to livestreaming, I was able to watch along. She spoke about the current ‘Warm Feet for All’ action and the upcoming album. However, due to technical issues, the livestream was cut short. The full interview video will be posted online, though.

Jennifer Weist / joiz Interview (2015-02-19)

Album #5 news, as told by Jennifer during her visit:

  • Not all of the vocals are finished being recorded.
  • The direction will still be “Jennifer Rostock” – pop, punk, rock, electro, and Jennifer will be rapping in a song again.
  • There are also no features yet.
  • All of the dates the band has planned are online already as the eight current festivals; no tour has been planned yet.

(Jennifer also stated that she is not on Snapchat, that the worst part about shooting the ‘Schlaflos’ music video was the long take as it was also cold, and that she doesn’t have a favorite song to play live or from any of the albums.)

Eight years ago today, Jennifer Rostock’s debut album Ins Offene Messer was released. Without it, many fans would never have found out about this amazing band. And just the day before the release, Jennifer Rostock performed the single ‘Kopf Oder Zahl’ at Bundesvision Song Contest 2008 for Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, and placed fifth. You can watch the performance below:

Andie Responses Welcome, Site Update Comments Off on Look! Productivity!

finally got around to translating the lyrics for Ins Offene Messer into English. Not all of them are done – I still have five to go (‘Kind Von Dir,’ ‘Diadem,’ ‘Mona Lisa,’ ‘Himalaya,’ and ‘Ich Will Hier Raus’) – but I was able to do seven translations today:

I’m also wondering: If you could change one thing about the site, what would it be?

I’m open to nearly any suggestion, and hope for look forward to you guys’ feedback!

Andie Band Update, Genau in diesem Ton Comments Off on Boston, Here She Comes! / Warm Feet for All

Last week, I posted that the four boys of the band were off to Boston, and that I didn’t know when Jennifer would join them. Earlier today, she posted a photo on Instagram with the (translated) caption “passing through isn’t my thing. but now i’m sitting in amsterdam and waiting for my flight to boston. boys freshen up, mama’s coming!”

The band also posted a video today about strassen|feger’s non-profit, which provides a bed and food to the homeless. They’ve also started an online fundraiser for the cause, with a goal of 10,000€ (they’re almost at 2,000€ right now). You can donate here.

[A translation of the description posted on the donation page will be added here later on once I can figure it out.]

Andie Band Update, Genau in diesem Ton, Interview, Site Update Comments Off on Interview with strassen|feger (26/2015)

I’ve added an interview that Jennifer Rostock did with the magazine strassen|feger about where they’re recording the upcoming album and their views on homelessness. However, it is an incomplete version of the interview, as the full-length one is in the print version of the magazine, which I don’t have access to. #LovingAForeignBandProblems

Andie Throwback Thursday Comments Off on Throwback Thursday: aerials Perform at Kirsche

A little #TBT for everyone – a video I found while browsing YouTube of Jennifer and Joe performing at an event back when they were still aerials. I’m not sure when exactly this is from, or what songs they’re playing, but I believe they’re covers.
